I’m not doing so well with posting regularly and wanted to provide a quick update of life’s adventures for the past month. January began with New Year’s at Manly Beach with my parents and New Year’s Day spent walking around Sydney’s Circular Quay enjoying the summer sights and sounds. My parents returned home on 2 January and we returned to Canberra to resume our daily life. I (finally) began teaching SUP lessons again this month and words cannot express how great that felt. We spent MLK weekend at Merimbula and enjoyed the sand and surf (and cooler coastal weather). The next weekend was Australia Day weekend and while we didn’t party like most Australians seem to do, we had a good weekend hanging around the house. Several heat waves struck Canberra during the month, which zapped any extra energy I might have had, but in all, January was a fine month.
